It's difficult to say when the first snow falls in the Munich area, there's no definitive answer. Whether there's snow in October, November or December is anybody's guess. January, February and March usually do have quite Wintry conditions, although not too many of the kind of heavy falls of snow that were seen in March, 2006 (see the photos of that at http://www.wetteronline.de/feature/2006/03/05_ws.htm). A lot of heavy, wet snow is also often dumped in April.

Of course, as you drive South into the alpine regions of Southern Bavaria and into Austria, the likelyhood of snow between October and April increases many-fold. Winter tires are not, however, only for snowy conditions! They greatly assist driving more safely in wintry conditions that could just be sub-zero (Centigrade) but without actual snow falling.

Last year's BMW prices can be seen at http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...t=winter+tires. The pricing structure is different this time around but for the most part are probably around half of those rates!
